Screen for window

When the sun illuminates the screen, its rays passing through the glass beads embellish the walls whimsical colorful designs. Accurately measure the width and height of the window frame. Before starting to work with colored pencils sketch the pattern. Select beads, nice-looking against the light. Check the strength of fixing of all parts prior to attaching the screen to the window frame.

Just obmerte the window frame where you intend to hang the screen. Carefully cut the steel mesh with wire cutters to Refine its size — it should be placed freely on the frame. Cut a piece of steel wire with a length equal to the perimeter of the screen with a small margin at the loop corners. The pliers make the corner loop (see photo).

Bind the wire frame to the mesh, bending the cut ends of the mesh around the frame of the pliers with pointed jaw. Make sure that the frame is firmly attached and all the ends of the wire are bent tightly around her.

Tie beads to the grid in accordance with the sketch pattern (it is better to draw a sketch with colored pencils of the same color as the selected beads). In our example, the cells of the grid is suspended for one busine that form a pattern of rhombuses. For hanging beads, use folded in half thin wire. Tie wire around both adjacent corners of the grid cell, put a bead on them and pull apart the wire ends of the suspension to tie it around opposite corners. Then the bead is placed in the center of a square cell.
